    Henkei/United

    1. Hound. Best figure in the line, period. Cartoon-accurate robot model, updated instead of outright changed vehicle model. The "Classics" styled lines can be summed up with one figure, Hound.

    2. Bumblebee. While I just credited Hound for his updated instead of changed alt mode, Bumblebee gained much more than lost in becoming a Peugeot 206. Aside from that, he actually looks like he'd be worth a damn to the Autobot team (moreso once he's armed with the pistol from the G3 Trailer). Great toy when you get right down to it, which I don't mind owning several redecoes of (Classics, Cliffjumper, Henkei, RTS, and United).

    3. Megatron. He's a gun again. He's finally a damn gun again. People bitch, but the Marketing and Advertising Teams weren't kidding when they told us "Nerf or Nothing". And the Henkei and United decoes both clearly showed that the mold can look good with a better color scheme and deco.

    That's my three. Hate to be Autobot heavy, but if I had Jazz by now he may take the 2 spot for me.
